The Top Ten

1 Victory Song

I discovered Ensiferum right after Wintersun. What can I say, this song is epic as hell! I'm ready to fight for my kingdom. - Warden

Just give a sword and a shield and I'll go fight for my kingdom.
This is epic as hell. Made me love folk metal

Its Awesome song with cool and melodious music. It deserves to be in top among the ensiferum songs. Best folk metal song.

Its like the best folk metal song I've ever heard... It should be way above one more magic potion

2 Lai Lai Hei

Lai Lai Hei! Haha it's such a catchy song, and powerful! It starts off with soft Finnish verses but transitions to heavier sections in English. For the last section of the song, they chant LAI LAI HEI to an incredibly memorable guitar line and Jari's vocals are top-notch and occasional hit extremely high notes - pure bliss. By far Ensiferum's best work.

This song starts with a slow melody of folk instruments. The lyrics are made up of both Finnish and English verses and you can't help but love the 'Lai Lai Hei' chorus. - djh101

This is by far, without a doubt the best ensiferum song. No disrespect to victory song

I just love the lyrics in a language that I don't understand

3 One More Magic Potion

Victory Songs was the first album to feature Petri Lindroos on vocals and it turned out great. And I can't say I've ever heard a better song about beer. Classic. - djh101

Reaping this song daily is the normal act after hear it

Awesome songs I've ever heard

4 Battle Song

I feel like I were in a fantasy world full with adventures. I always love melodious metal music. The Battle Song is my favorite. I can just put headset
On, close my eyes, imagine fantasy story, and listen it. It's very great to do!

5 Twilight Tavern

I know everyone says this, but this song should definitely be higher. The whole song is just a smorgasbord of awesome riffs and melodies, with an epic chorus to boot. I love the way it continuously accelerates up to the finish before the final note.

After hearing the live version of this song, I immediately bought the album.

Get blown away by the epic intro, then epic voice and then epic chorus work.

The riffs are so good almost too much for me too handle... Almost - wolphert

6 From Afar

I am a big fan of speed metal and this song is a little faster vocally than most of their songs!

The song that got me into Ensiferum and still one of the best songs of this genre I have heard today.

A great song, and the best Live Song ever played.

This shoul be at least fifth! And token of time should be just above it. Great song and awesome lyrics and melody.

7 Token of Time

I Set Sail For The AGEless WINDS
No FEAR of dying or a thought of SURRENDA

Riff from heaven

The best ever... this song is pure magic. Nothing can’t compare

This song is #1 for sure

8 Into Battle

When I Heard This Song, I grew a beard and my dog became a mighty war-hound.

This song thus far is my favorite, especially the awesome flute part of the song, with token of time.

Should be number 1.The best no doubt

This song is a one in a million!

9 Wanderer

It's just an epic song, the tales that Ensiferum give us in their songs makes you travel in time and see that fierce warrior living for the sword

How is this song not higher? The song kicks in beautifully after an awesome intro, the chorus is one of the best I've heard and it's fairly long but progresses fantastically! Needs much higher recognition!

When first suggested by a friend, I had no idea this song would be so mindblowing. There is no word that can describe the emotions and imageries the soft music in between put in the mind of the listener. It speaks of the Wanderer's memories and emotions.

First one I heard, still the best so far. - waxythread13

10 Iron

Nice intro and beautiful song, true it is not the best, but it's worthy to hear. - scourge

First song (maybe the best) I listened from ensiferum, always listen like 1 time never get old.

The Contenders

11 The New Dawn

Great song that starts fast then goes to an awesome headbanging part in the middle and typical Petri solo and returns to the intro riff in the end.

The intro and bridge and outro: that amazing melodic, almost lyrical lead guitar style and that DT-esque drumbeat."kick-snare-kick-snare helping you along the way is godly!

12 Smoking Ruins

So far the best, more balanced song between melody and gutural voices.

13 In My Sword I Trust

This song isn't even in the top 10?! You have got to be kidding me. This is one of their best songs. I got into folk metal cause of Victory song and In My Sword I Trust. Just awesome...

Right, Victory Song and In My Sword I Trust are simply the best, classics already.

This should be at least in the top ten. My favorite song by them.

The best track for Ensiferum...

14 Sword Chant

I could listen to this song for every hour left in my life and regret nothing

Repeat repeat repeat

15 Warrior's Quest
16 One Man Army
17 Treacherous Gods

Awesome instrumentals especially the guitar. Love the progression and transitions.

How is this not higher? Excellent guitar and lyrics. The tempo of the song is just utterly flawless. I usually feel the bridge feels too off from the rest of the song to flow properly, but not Treacherous Gods.

Indeed, this song progresses incredibly well from beginning to utterly epic end! Brilliant!

This song progresses incredibly well as one listens to it. It's also awesomely epic!

18 Hero in a Dream

How can this song be 17?! Hero in a dream must be 2 to me! Just watch this song live and you'll see

Powerful and melodic, I love it

19 Blood is the Price of Glory

Jeez, only twenty seven on the list? This song is just so fast paced and aggressive, and the scream following right after Ad Victoriam is probably one of the most memorable things from Victory Songs. The break down, the chants, and the chorus are all so good; I can't believe this placed lower than Wanderer and Eternal Wait. Blood is the Price of Glory deserves to be in the top five if you ask me.

Badass! No axe stayed in your weak hand!

20 Stone Cold Metal

The best song by Ensiferum :D

21 Heathen Throne
22 Tale of Revenge

What? Not in the top 10 :(

What? Number 13? Are you kidding me? This is the best Ensiferum song :O

23 Eternal Wait

Such a beautiful song with a mind blowing chorus, needs to be higher on the list...

Simply amazing song. I can't believe it isn't top ten

This song is way better than all those.

Best ensiferum song by far.

24 Guardians of Fate

This song is amazing

25 The Longest Journey

One of the longest and most epic of all songs by Ensiferum. Similar to Heathen Throne (surprise there, this is part two of Heathen Throne).

Best song you ever can hear - Odinest

Epic

26 Unsung Heroes
27 Little Dreamer

, why isn't this song higher up this song has so much meaning to it, in my eyes it's about a young Viking who has dreams of adventure, but is told by others including his father that dreams are just dreams and that he will never accomplish them, the young Viking then runs to the forest, and other young warriors accompany him and they start an adventure together to prove others and the dreamers father wrong.

One of the best songs by ensiferum... The spoken part sent shivers down my spine! Deserves to be much higher on the list

So amazing riff's by ensiferum that's so great yeah

28 Deathbringer from the Sky

Desubringer from the sky

29 Lady in Black

Are you PeoPle kiding? No really I think so, this one is the best, listen to it then judge.
What a beat, nice music. SPiritual intense...

30 Raised by the Sword

The best folk metal song ever! A great song from a great band! Raised by the sword with Victory Song and Twilight Tavern are my favorite songs! Hail Ensiferum!

They hardly ever play this one live - but what a killer of a song!

31 Windrider

Windrider has a cathy riff and an amazing harmonic part!
This song just takes you to another place!
When I was scrolling down the list, I realized 'windrider' is not even in the list...
Well I was surprised to say the least!

32 Lost in Despair

Amazing song. I don't know why this wasn't already on the list. It's so deep.

One of their best songs.

33 Axe of Judgement

From their new album ONE MAN ARMY...

Are you kidding me this song is epic and catchy especially when his screams in this song, and the axe of judgement falls! And make them suffer! On this album these are my favorite, however I like all songs on this album
1.axe of judgement
2.warrior without a war

34 Dragonheads

Proof that Ensiferum could march on without three original members, amazing riffs and lyrics. Great melodic breaks and and overall one of their best. Shame it's off their unknown album :(

35 Slayer of Light
36 Passion Proof Power

This song is awesome guys check it out. This song is from unsung heroes... That is awesome... Rate it... This song... Look like Fantastic

41 Ahti

Best circle pit song ever

42 Way of the Warrior

Most powerful song

43 Last Breath

Last Breath has a good melody. Perhaps one of the best songs I have heard from Ensiferum. I am surprised its not even in the list. It must be in the top 10 or at least 15.

44 Frost

Raw and original. Their first song I've heard and it was enough for my to sell my soul to Ensiferum
